    Tapas is a hard one, I was going to recommend patatas bravas but it appears the potato is deep fried :(

    I would suggest maybe a spanish omelette, roasted veggies, side salads and enquire about how the meat dishes are cooked. You can ask for a salad without dressing to cut back on the oil too.

    Good luck!

    I would eat Patatas anyway - I LIVED on them in Barcelona!
    A lot of places do these little garlic chicken skewer things, you could ask how they cook that? xxx

    OMG I love tapas. I think most of the things are cooked in oil. How about having paella instead of lots of little dishs. If your doing extra easy I would imagine the rice and meat would be free, just syns for oils etc used to cook? Otherwise, flexi syns and enjoy :) x

    Our local tapas does a lovely vegetable paella - as you have to special order it anyway I ask them to make it with as little oil as possible, this seems to make them laugh a lot but it's yummy and very filling!
    If not I would suggest chicken skewers or similar, nothing in a sauce!
